All college students or recent graduates interning in New York City fashion this summer are welcome to register beginning on April 16th. As space is limited, applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received.
Last year’s event was an enormous success, with nearly 200 interns from over 90 universities and 150 companies in attendance. Visit http://www.fashioncampusnyc.com/ for photos and videos from last year’s event. Following the successful launch of Fashion Campus NYC in 2011, Parsons and NYCEDC also launched Fashion Draft NYC in February of this year, bringing 25 top college seniors from universities across the country to network and interview for management-track positions with some of New York’s leading fashion companies.
The Fashion Campus NYC and Fashion Draft NYC initiatives are a result of Mayor Bloomberg’s FashionNYC2020, a year-long examination of the challenges facing the fashion industry to help the City build on its competitive advantages to maintain its status as a global fashion capital.
